  1. You don't have to even make a claim. When you take out a policy the insurance company will ask whether you've have any accidents in the last x years (regardless of whether it was reported or claimed). If you respond 'no' when it should be 'yes' then you've probably invalidated the policy you've taken out and have commited a fraud.
  2. Does the car start now? If so more likely a fault with the ctek and not the battery.
  3. The way the horizontal crease line has restored itself is very impressive. I thought that would atleast have a kink in it. Well done.
  4. I suggest you try our two insurance company sponsors first! Both have provided competative quotes for me and fellow members. I use A-Plan currently.
  5. Very valid point of view and one, in a professional capacity, I've made to clients but on the other hand should a company get away with either poor service or ripping off customers simply because seeking an appropriate remedy is difficult/time consuming?
  6. I questioned an insurance company on this point and was told that things: cycles, motorcycles, paint tins, planks, boxes, get dropped on cars when in garages. Higher risk = higher premium.
  7. Have you pushed back to see if they offer a better premium? Usually works for me. If you have and there's been no movement then time to move your business. Plenty out there who will want it. IMO insurance companies will charge as much as they think they can get away with!
  8. On a 986 it is the Alarm Control Unit which controls the alarm etc but on a 987 it's a different unit, I think, the Rear Control Unit.
  9. Do check for water but I very much doubt it's that. IIRC the electrics under the passenger seat is a rear control unit dealing with electrics at the rear of the car. My guesses are: 1. Wiper relay fail (try removal, cleaning contacts and refitting); or 2 wiper switch fail.
  10. @Araf could this post be moved to the technical forum where it'll get more attention. It's not a "how to" post rather a "how do you'.
  11. Have 3 cars and house insured through A-Plan. Consistently good quotes often bettering the premium of the year before.
  12. @Araf any chance this thread could be moved out of the "How to" forum? (And this post deleted?)
  13. Not on insurance premiums! What about a basic mini?
  14. Probably explained by the fact that the Citroen C1 is a learner and new driver car and therefore involved in more accidents. Consequently it's rated by insurance companies as a higher risk car. Solution? Your wife gets a Boxster! 😀
  15. This. Whatever you do on the financial side (and if knock for knock then he should pay for 50% of your repair rather than you just paying 50%) shouty aggressive behaviour is so inappropriate to use against a woman on her own. As your wife is badly shaken and they have her mobile phone number I'd want the matter logged with the police in case more threatening behaviour follows.
  16. With a protected no claims bonus the NCB will be protected. However your premium is likely to be raised (for all cars) before the NCB is applied. I have known people where there's been no discernable difference in financial outcome but others where there has been an increase (but not a "horror show"). I guess it depends on the insurance company.
  17. Remember it's the job that became redundant not you. Your talents and skills will find a job elsewhere. Good luck.
  18. You'll need to pm @vroomba. The Facebook page appears to be an advert for Z-art Design rather than an enthusiasts FB page.
  19. They have a limited number of insurance companies they deal with. A-Plan provided a competitive quote but when I mentioned spacers the company would not insure. The quote with spacers (from another insurance company they deal with) was not competitive by some margin. Another of our sponsors helped me out.
  20. They discount for BoXa. net members and are generally very helpful. This year though they could not assist me as I had spacers (a modification!).
  21. Good job. Looks very smart. Move to "How to" forum?
  22. Did you check the links listed by NebO above? Still working for me.
